gosh, i almost feel in a position where i can post here. no doubt it will all change again soon! DS is just over 15 months.

06.30am wake & chatter in crib
07.00am mummy hauls herself out of bed and b/f
08.00am breakfast
10.00am small snack & milk in sippy
11.30am lunch
12.15pm nap (2-2.5 hours)
02.15pm wake
02.30pm snack & milk in sippy
05.15pm dinner
06.00pm bath, b/f, & stories with daddy
06.45pm lights out

sometimes we have slightly earlier wake-ups, in which case we bring the nap forward a little.

Dear God, I can't get over how much less my lo sleeps!

At 21 months here's our general day:
Anywhere from 5:30am/6am :P (most mornings) to 6:30am (once or twice a week) -Wake up
7:30 am - Breakfast
10 am - small snack
Noon - Lunch
12:30/1:00 - Nap (depends on morning wake up time)
Naps 1 hr to 1 1/2 hrs. tops! :o ::) (Rarely throws in a 2 hour nap if he's sick, very rare)
3:00 - snack
5:30/6pm - dinner
6:30 - Bath, milk, story, cuddles
7:00/7:15 in crib (most nights babbles and plays for 15-20min. before he's quiet) ::)
He NEVER sleeps 12 hours!

I'm exhausted by the end of his day! ;)

Mia is almost 20 months - here's our routine

6.30 ish wake (there is a lot of variation here sometimes it's 5am but mainly it's around the 6am - 6.30am mark)
7.00 - breakfast
9.00 - snack
11.30 - lunch
12.30 - 2.00 - nap.  No more than 1.5 hours now in a bid to try and solve our early starts
3.00 - snack
5.00 - tea
7.00 - 8oz bottle and toast
7.30 bed

That's pretty much how it has been for the last month.

Now that we're consistently on one nap, thought I'd post our routine (thank goodness it's more predictable now!). LO is 16 months, and this has been our routine for 3-4 weeks now.

7:30/8: wake up
8:30 mommy gets Owen from crib
9:00 breakfast of waffles & cream cheese, fruit (he won't eat until he's been up a good hour)
9-11 play group, go to park, or other activities typically outside now that it's nice!
11:30 lunch (sandwich, fruit, crackers & cheese)
12:00/1:00 nap (depends on when woke up, how tired, etc.) Typically 2-2.5 hours.

2:30/3:30 up from nap play with babysitter
4:00 snack - (raisins, fruit&cereal bar, or crackers)
5:00 help mama make dinner, play by himself
6:00 dinner with family (protein, fruit, try to get him to eat a veg - usually refuses, more cheese & crackers to supplement)
6:30 bath, stories, bottle
7:30 lights out and night night!

NO MORE NIGHT WAKINGS!!!!!! This is a huge improvement for us! Yay for one nap territory!  ;D

Owen, 12/28/05 7 lb 2 oz

Enjoying the toddler years!

At 16 months, Ds's routine isn't too different from at 14 months...

wakes up anywhere between 7-7:45am (weird) but we leave him there to play until 7:45.
7:45 - 6oz milk
8:30 breakfast - usually one of toast/waffle/cereal, 1/2 yogurt, fruit, water
10:15 - small snack (cheerios, a bit of fruit, etc), get dressed
11:30 lunch - dinner leftovers, sandwich, veggies, etc. fruit, water
12:45 6oz bottle and nap, usually 2 hours minimum
3:30 small snack (a ww cracker and cheese or fruit)
5:30 dinner - whatever we're having unless it's not appropriate, then a keep a few things frozen in the freezer for him leftover from past dinners
7:15 bath
7:45 bed
He needs about 13-13.5 hours of sleep daily which is why I think his wake up time fluctuates a bit - if he had a shorter PM nap the day before, he sleeps in later and if he had an extra long nap the day before, he wakes up earlier.

Gracie's day at 14.5 months....

6am wake up
stays in crib until mommy comes and gets her....she plays quietly in the dark with her lovey and other stuffed animals
6:30ish mommy goes in, Grace gets changed and ready for the day
6:45ish breakfast w/sippy
short play time
7:30-8am walk with mommy
8:30 Mia arrives (the 10 month old I watch)
8:30-9:30 play time
9:30 put Grace in crib for her nap then put Mia down for her nap (by 10am)

10 or 10:30 Snack
This is when we got out if we choose to do so (play ground, etc.), or we stay home and play...dance, bubbles, silly songs, etc.
12pm Lunch
12:30 Baby Einstein Video
1pm play time, story time, etc.
1:30 put Grace down for her nap then put Mia down for her nap (by 2pm)

3pm Snack
Daddy's home at this time on most days
If we have Mia we just play, if Mia's not here we sometimes run errands at this time
5pm Dinner
6pm Bath, PJ's, Brush Teeth, Sing, Read Books, Pray, Bed

It's too hot right now to go outside and play (we live in South Florida) and there are tons of mosquito's in our yard so we are stuck indoors more now.  :P We use to go outside and play once a day and can't wait to do so again. :)
I am so in love with my husband and adore my precious Grace

more playtime or going out to playground or shopping or for a walk
11:30              - lunch

more playtime, playground, outings etc
5:30-6:30 pm  - dinner
